Since we're on the subject of Malaise Era Torinos today, we should probably watch the classic Torino-versus-dumpster scene from The Big Lebowski. The 70s Torino occupies a special place in our mythology, and the cool thing is that they're still quite affordable. Movie-car geeks might notice that the private dick tailing The Dude is driving a Beetle, just like the private dick in the Coen Brothers' first movie.
